Obadiah 1:15 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:15 The day - The time which the Lord hath appointed for the punishing of this, and other nations. As thou hast done - Perfidiously, cruelly, and ravenously, against Jacob.
"Why doesn't the Almighty bring the wicked to judgment? Why must the godly wait for him in vain?
"Send out a call for archers to come to Babylon. Surround the city so none can escape. Do to her as she has done to others, for she has defied the LORD, the Holy One of Israel.
Destroying armies come against Babylon. Her mighty men are captured, and their weapons break in their hands. For the LORD is a God who gives just punishment; he always repays in full.
for the terrible day is almost here--the day of the LORD! It is a day of clouds and gloom, a day of despair for the nations.
Therefore, as surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, I will pay back your angry deeds with my own. I will punish you for all your acts of anger, envy, and hatred. And I will make myself known to Israel by what I do to you.
You rejoiced at the desolation of Israel's territory. Now I will rejoice at yours! You will be wiped out, you people of Mount Seir and all who live in Edom! Then you will know that I am the LORD.
The day of the LORD is near, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty. How terrible that day will be!
